Who’s Afraid of Vagina Wolf?
Anna is a charismatic but struggling filmmaker facing a midlife crisis, having turned 40, she lives in her friend’s garage in L.A., dances in a vagina costume for money, and has neither job nor girlfriend. Just when she’s about to give up on both, she meets sexy post-feminist, Katia.
To impress her new muse, Anna decides to write and direct an all-female remake of ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ casting Katia and her best friends Chloe and Penelope in the film. Along the way, with the help of those around her, she discovers some home truths with hilarious results.
From director Anna Margarita Albelo (A Lez in Wonderland, Hooters) comes this eccentric, semi-autobiographical romantic comedy with Albelo in her first feature fiction film alongside Guinevere Turner (Go Fish, The L Word) in a show-stopping and award-winning performance, Carrie Preston (True Blood) and Janina Gavankar (True Blood).
Co-dependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same
Co-dependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same tracks the adventures, misadventures and experiences of three aliens from the planet Zots, sent down to Earth on a mission to rid themselves of romantic emotions, which are considered toxic to their planet’s atmosphere. They are told to have their hearts broken on Earth, where such heartbreak is considered a given. Two of the aliens, Zylar (promiscuous and sassy) and Barr (co-dependent and clutchy) fall into an unfortunate romance with each other, but Zoinx, the third, meets Jane, an Earthling of mild manners who lives an uneventful life and works in a stationery store. Unaware that the sudden object of her affection is an alien (despite her bald head and monotone speech), Jane falls hard for Zoinx. The feeling is mutual.
Co-dependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same is an original mash-up of a lo-fi New York City romantic comedy and a sci-fi B-movie spoof, exuding elements of Coneheads, Earth Girls are Easy and a touch of Mars Attacks!, full of extra-terrestrial laughs, loves and a dazzling soundtrack.
For Shirin (Desiree Akhavan), being part of a perfect family isn’t easy. Acceptance eludes her from all sides: her family doesn’t know she’s bisexual, and her ex-girlfriend, Maxine (Rebecca Henderson), can’t understand why she doesn’t tell them. Even the six-year-old boys in her moviemaking class are too ADD to focus on her for more than a second. Following a family announcement of her brother’s betrothal to a parentally approved Iranian prize catch, Shirin embarks on a private rebellion involving a series of escapades, while trying to decipher what went wrong with Maxine.
Writer/director Desiree Akhavan, best known for her cult web series The Slope, stars in this story of a bisexual Iranian-American woman trying to find her way in modern-day Brooklyn. Appropriate Behaviour is an intelligent, engaging comedy that heralds an exciting new voice in indie cinema (with Akhavan soon to be seen in the next season of Lena Dunham’s Girls).
